Youth Advisory Board Member
Start Date: January 2022
Job Locations: Chicago, IL, Detroit, MI, and Yipslanti, MI
Peer Health Exchange (PHE) is a national non-profit organization that builds healthier communities with young people. Together we create education opportunities for peers to share the tools and resources young people need to make healthy choices. Since 2003, we have trained more than 15,000 college students to deliver in-person health education to over 188,000 high school-aged young people in communities across the country. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we re-designed our in-person programming to be delivered virtually and partnered with high school students to understand their mental health needs. Following that collaboration, we launched our app selfsea.org for young people ages 13 – 18. In the past year, we’ve expanded from two in-person program models to five in-person and digital program offerings and we are continuing to grow! Our mission is critical, our team is diverse, and our work is vibrant. Check us out on TikTok (@peerhealthexchange)!
